A woman driving a pickup was injured in a collision with a semi truck near the intersection of Diagonal Road and East Punkin Center around 4 p.m. Wednesday.
The extent of the driver’s injuries weren’t immediately available, but Fire Chief Scott Stanton said she was treated at the scene before being taken to the hospital for further care. The driver of the semi truck declined medical attention.
The front of the gold Toyota Tundra was smashed and it was resting next to a fence on the eastbound side of the road, facing the wrong way. The semi truck was smashed above the front wheel on the left side of the vehicle, and debris littered the roadway.
Diagonal Road was blocked, and drivers coming east were rerouted through Baxter Road. State Trooper Jerrad Little said he did not know how the crash occurred, but he thought the semi truck was driving west, and the pickup truck was driving east.
